OUR LADY STAR OF THE SEA NOVENA
"Prayer and quiet service: these are our victorious weapons."
~ Pope Francis, Urbi et Orbi blessing
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Mary, Star of the Sea,
light of every ocean,
guide seafarers across all dark and stormy seas
that they may reach the haven of peace and light
prepared in Him who calmed the sea.
As we set forth upon the oceans of the world
and cross the deserts of our time,
show us, 0 Mary, the fruit of your womb,
for without your Son we are lost.
Pray that we will never fail on life's journey,
that in heart and mind, word and deed,
in days of turmoil and in days of calm,
we will always look to Christ and say,
'Who is this that even wind and sea obey him?'
Our Lady of Peace,
pray for us!
Bright Star of the Sea,
Our Lady, Star of the Sea,
pray for seafarers,
pray for us.
